At just 25 years old, Brett was handed the keys to one of Hollywood’s hottest nightclubs, Dragonfly, and quickly became LA’s top club promoter. Brett’s epic parties were legendary, and everyone who was anyone wanted an invite.

But amidst the chaos of LA’s rock ‘n’ roll debauchery in 1993, with nightclub shootings and high-profile arrests of personalities like Madam Heidi Fleiss, rumors circulated that Brett had become a marked man.

On July 30, 1993, Brett’s life took a tragic turn. He was last seen alive leaving a Beverly Hills nightclub, bound for his West Hollywood apartment to meet a mysterious woman. The following day, he was found murdered in his home.
